Can Reproducible Testing Support the Future of ADAS?

Developing the testing strategies needed to realize vehicle innovation

Advanced driver assistance systems have the potential to transform road safety — but only if the technologies that power them are confirmed safe, too.

The Challenge 

How can "ADAS Targets" — such as the Soft Car 360® harmonized Global Vehicle Target (GVT) — be applied to developing industry-wide safety standards as well as answering bespoke testing questions?

Exponent's MULTIDISCIPLINARY Solution 

Exponent is actively designing verification and validation methodologies needed to inform the next generation of automotive innovation and legal inquiry on issues of not only 'did it do what we designed it to do in the environments we considered?' but also the additional question of 'does it deliver the user experience and capability we intended?'

Exponent's Impact 

Exponent's multidisciplinary approach to ADAS testing capabilities can help inform the coming decades of standards development and proliferation of new vehicle technologies, including automated and assistive systems, as well as related demands for incident and claims investigation and highly customizable vehicle performance testing.
